human instead of forgotten shadows earlier my colleague andrew farmer discussed the situation with artie's marina kosar a boat was just back from athens. it all started on the eighteenth of june and then every day after that more and more prisoners across the country joined in the hunger strike in total there were around four and a half thousand prisoners across the country who were starving themselves and they couldn't take it any longer which is why they stopped and i said that i will continue fighting for what they believe in and otherwise what are they fighting for they are against this bill which envisions a tightening of restructure of the country's penal code and also the creation of type c. crystal it seems across the country and they claim that this will be like montana mowbray so in general they're saying that the condition in prison is already wrong plus they don't want to see the creation of a new one which potentially could be worse so what's been the government's response to those arguments presumably believes that these things should go ahead yes and also we know that the country's main opposition party syriza tried to reason with

7:14 am
a view. of those groups have been defeated or at least neutralized that probably never really happened and isis has been in not just because it was out in syria but also by the incompetence or terrorism and corruption. in iraq so all these different voices are going to see to asia which is very probable that iraq could fragment into three state. the moment of the time being any i'm to i'm six areas that could overcome the division reading or up to shreds. leader of jihad as a militant group isis urges muslims worldwide to go to iraq and syria and join their battle for the recently declared islamic caliphate an audio message she vowed to lead the fight quote until rome is conquered this image went viral and social media allegedly revealing and mischa's plans of isis tour a drop pretty much the world map within five years as well as the middle east north africa and large areas of asia it's also bearing isis ambition to extend into

7:16 am
standard but time and time again washington's eagerness to involve itself in foreign conflicts has fueled sic tarion divisions creating an exceptionally dangerous circumstance the u.s. diplomacy unfortunately. has destroyed and made a mockery of the made you know what they have done in libya what they have done through you and continue to do it was done in iraq. and. it is all in something that. doesn't jive. except for the living and yet in each case washington has washed its hands of any responsibility the united states of america is not responsible for what happened in libya nor is it responsible for what is happening in iraq today in the absence of u.s. military action in iraq is warning that it could ask iran to carry out airstrikes
